The Ace tripod system from Sachtler, a Vitec Group brand, is the perfect camera support for the growing market of videographers and DSLR filmmakers. With a payload of up to 4kg (8.8 pounds), Ace is ideal for smaller HDV camcorders and video-enabled DSLR cameras.
Ace is also compact and durable and due to a special composite material, it is extremely lightweight. As with all Sachtler products, it is ergonomically designed and offers an intuitive feel. For Ace, the completely new patented drag, SA Drag (Synchronised Actuated Drag), was developed which guarantees the familiar accuracy and repeatability at an astonishing price / performance ratio. Sachtler offers a genuine broadcast feel for every videographer.
For the first time, the Ace tripod system offers those who shoot low-budget documentaries / ENG, industrials, wedding / event, training videos and webinars quality and dependability for professional work. With three vertical and three horizontal grades of drag (+0), the new patented SA drag enables fine adjustment for precise panning and tilting.
For Ace a glass fibre reinforced composite material was chosen which makes the new 75mm fluid head especially light and offers a comfortable and non-slip surface feel. For the head’s modern design, ergonomic aspects were the highest priority. The head enables camera operators to work extremely intuitively and professionally.
